Lol...I was meaning what would you put INSIDE of your media reactor. I already have an IM reactor. Should mention I also already have a UV sterilizer as well. Just some pre planning. Thanks!!!

If we're talking small space and it's just using it to use it, I'd go with carbon, and some poly fill to polish the water crystal clear.

If you are looking for media reactor as in, you want to add biological media, I'd go with seachem matrix and run slow flow through it.

Think that's more of what I'm thinking of doing. When I went on the buying spree I bought it to buy it not really thinking what I was gonna use it for. I thought carbon but once I bought my sterilizer I saw less of a need for carbon relatively speaking.
